Megaman creator’s Mega Man spiritual successor Kickstarter Mighty No. 9 adds a bunch of new platforms to launch
Keiji Inafune’s honest-I’m-not-just-remaking-Mega-Man Kickstarter Mighty No. 9 will definitely be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U when it launches next year after hitting its $2.2 million stretch goal. That’s on top of PC, Mac and Linux which were confirmed long ago.
Anyone who listens to the podcast will know that I love Inafune’s take on this. Capcom have clearly ignored Megaman of late, with it’s 25th anniversary passing last year with barely a whimper, and three games cancelled, his creators has gone “Screw you guys, if you won’t do it, I will!” Which is just genius. Plus, what would you rather play, a game made by the man who’s vision created the franchise, or the studio trying to ape that?
Those waiting for PS4 and Xbox One versions have a little while to wait, that’s the $3.3 million Stretch goal though there’s still 13 days to get there. The next one is just a challenge mode, though the goal at $2.75 million offering online co-op with female character Call is the next really interesting one. Mighty No. 9 is currently sitting at $2,270,654, but if you fancy adding to that, head over to Kickstarter.
